easyJet to launch five new flights

easyJet, the UK’s largest airline which operates the best European network in Italy, has today announced the launch of five new routes from Rome Fiumicino. The five new routes are year-round services to Montpellier, Thessaloniki and Belgrade along with summer services to the popular islands of Menorca and Rhodes.

This move continues easyJet’s expansion plan in Rome which will see it increasing its capacity by a third. In December the airline announced two new routes – a daily service to Prague and thrice-weekly services to Nantes, both of which will begin operations this spring.

“This new announcement demonstrates easyJet’s continued commitment not only to Italy, our third largest market, but also to increasing our presence in Rome Fiumicino,” said Frances Ouseley, easyJet’s Country Director for Italy. “The expansion will enable easyJet to maintain its No.2 position at this key airport in Italy and further expand an already comprehensive range of European destinations.”

With the launch of these new routes, easyJet now operates 33 routes to and from Rome Fiumicino, with a total of 154 routes operated to and from Italy. easyJet opened a base at Fiumicino in 2009 and currently carries three million passengers each year to and from the airport – this is expected to rise to four million annually through its expansion plans. 96% of easyJet’s Italian customers say they would fly with easyJet again and one in four Italians now say easyJet is their preferred airline.

easyJet has also announced plans to launch a third base in Italy this year with a new base opening in Naples this March. The airline has also announced a 35% expansion of services to and from Catania in recent months. easyJet is the largest airline at Milan Malpensa, Venice and Naples. The airline currently has 25 aircraft based in Italy.
